Canada issues travel advisory after protesters riot in Haiti

Haiti suspends fuel price hike after protesters riot

The capital Port-au-Prince and its surrounding areas have stood paralysed since Friday afternoon, with major routes blocked by barricades, some made of burning tires, and some protesters calling for a revolution in the impoverished country.

The controversial fuel price hike that triggered deadly protests in the French speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state, has been suspended.

"When you think about the fact that some Haitians make just $5 a week and the government wants to increase the price of gasoline by 38% that in and of itself points to the reason for the unrest", he said.

"They're just waiting for things to die down a little bit", Kenny said.

At least two police stations and several police vehicles were burned.

The government attempted to defend the accord signed with the International Monetary Fund, saying that the reduction of public subsidies unfairly privileged the economy of the citizens of the neighboring Dominican Republic, who cross the border in search of cheaper fuel prices.

In a statement, Lafontant said the government strongly condemns the acts of violence and vandalism.

That amount, he said, "could have allowed us to build many kilometres (miles) of highway. many classrooms. many health clinics".
